BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Oct. 1, 2020 - PRLog* -- "Sleep is fun to kid about," Dr. Gary S. Goodman says, pointing to his favorite "testimonial" for his new book, Sleep & Grow Rich:
"Wish I had this book 23,055,416,777,361,723 winks ago!" –Rip Van Winkle
But there is a very serious side to sleeping, and especially to missing our shuteye that Dr. Gary says isn't anything to be cute about.
As a society, we're incredibly sleep-deprived. And it's costing us a fortune.
"There are more car accidents caused by drowsy drivers than by drunk drivers," he says in the book.
"Accidents on the job are also largely attributable to the effects of sleeplessness," he points out, citing Canadian research.
Worse, we live in a culture that lionizes folks that sacrifice their sleep. You've probably heard that quip, "There's plenty of time to sleep after I'm dead."
Researchers tell us we die sooner by losing sleep, so the "savings" we seem to be gaining on one end are given back on the other end of the hourglass.
Goodman says modern day billionaires such as Amazon's Jeff Bezos cite the centrality of sleep to their success. Quoting him and others, the author says the idea of pulling lots all-nighters may be a badge of honor for edgy college undergrads, but it is a path to poverty and perennial grumpiness.
What about geniuses such as Edison who is said to have, "Never slept?"
"That's baloney," the author says. "Edison was a tremendous sleeper. He used his sleep to refresh and incubate ideas. He took a zillion naps which is a testament to being able to nod-off and nod-on at will."
Goodman also says dreaming is a very important contributor to success. Einstein had a famous dream he was riding on a beam of light, which led to the development of Relativity Theory.
"Plus, Einstein died rich, as did Edison."
Citing a nightmare he had when doing business in a distant city, Goodman awoke to devise a brilliant new protocol for training his clients. That innovation, alone, was worth millions of dollars.
In one chapter, the author says, "Your employer is not your sleep's friend." By compelling people to work longer hours bosses are depriving employees of a proper mental state in which to be productive.
"Hopefully, this will change as more people work remotely," Goodman says.
Asked to sum-up his book, Goodman smiles:
"I hope it puts you to sleep!"
